I've been kinda quiet, but I need some of your collective wisdom.
Things are going great with my OB - she is VBAC friendly and has so far had a 100% success rate for VBAC attempts (has only been in practice 2 years).
Everything looks good on the anatomy ultrasound, I have a marginal previa, but it only has to move 0.5 inches between now (20+6) and delivery, which shouldnt be an issue at all.
She's going to let me monitor sugars instead of doing the glucose test (yay!)
And she reassured me that if she isnt the one on call when I go into labor that she will leave instructions to BE CALLED and will come in (not all of her call partners are as VBAC friendly as she is)
My question is this: I ended up with a c-section due to several things (GDM, talked into induction at 40 weeks with a Bishop score of 0, etc) - but I think the main one was that Brayden was OP and had his head in such a position that he would've injured his neck trying to actually come out (molding looked like an OA baby). He NEVER fully engaged and I only made it to 8.
Best we can figure, he may have been OP due to my anterior placenta last time. I did all the right things - spinning babies, webster-trained chiro, etc and labored w/o epi for 19 hours before giving in to anesthesia (was on HIGH DOSE pit) so I could change positions, etc
I am concerned this time b/c the ultrasound showed another anterior placenta. not only is it anterior, it's low, so it probably implanted over the scar (apparantly this is one of those nondisclosed c-section risks). Does anybody know or have info on the relationship between anterior placentas and malposition? I've started adjustments with my chiro again and will do everything I know to encourage good positioning, but Im just worried.
